Great little Italian place that does amazing pizza and pasta. If you are in the restaurant then you can watch your pizza being cooked in the oven. I've been to the place lots of times and always been a very good standard.

Ambience is very warm and welcoming. It is great for family meals or even solo meals. Price is decent and definitely value for money. The serving is large for a single portion.
